    I have a beautiful handmade by me wedding dress for sale. I made the dress because I could not decide which of two dresses I preferred so I made one dress using the top style of one and the bottom style of the other I liked.

    The material costs for lace, satins, silks, other fabrics, sequins, beads and etc, exceeded $900.00. Similarly detailed dresses are selling for $1500.00 and up the last time I checked.

    The dress will fit up to 125 - 130lbs with ease, a 38" chest and has room at the waistline. It has a full attached train with a large floral bow at the back waist. The neckline is lace, pearl buttoned around a heart shaped cut out with pearl strings. The hemline is appliques and beads and there is intricute beadwork and sequins all over the dress and train, including the pouf cap sleeves. The sleeves may be worn up or off the shoulder. The beads appear dark in the picstures but they are a very pale antique blush color, bordering on a light ivory blush. The dress will need a lightweight crinoline at minimum and it can be worn with a full hoop.

    I will pay the $150.00 to have the dress dry cleaned and preserved before it is shipped. This will take 2 - 3 weeks for the dress to be returned to me to ship to the winning bidder. But it is an expense the new bride will not have to worry about and the dress will only need some wrinkle removing from shipping.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions. As I made the dress, I do not have a standard size to give you but I can tell you as much about it as possible if I have missed any info.

    My daughter has decided that she will never wear this dress because she says she has no chest or waist. And the dress is really not a style suited to her. Since I am gathering funds for some extensive dental work, then this dress can go on to make someone else's special day perfect as it will not be passed down to my daughter.

    Once dress and shipping is paid for, I will send the dress to the cleaners. I accept Paypal at [email protected]

    Shipping includes insurance and delivery confirmation.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them.
